Costa Rica 2016 photos!

So we’ve just returned from a successful 12 days in the Osa peninsula in south-western Costa Rica. Although there was always some risk of missing certain species at the end of the dry season (which turned out to be true), we found a wide variety of amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and marine life. We even made friends with an orphaned Ocelot! I didn’t think it was possible for Costa Rica to be so dry, according to locals the driest in a long time. This initially made finding even common amphibians rather hard work, but in the end persistence paid off.

Many thanks to Adam Bland, Mike Boston, Marcelo Carvajal, Andrew Gray and especially Eduardo Castro Rojas for help before and during the trip.

I’m afraid I’ve been very lazy and not written a field report but instead added the photos to an album. Click here or on the image below.

One highlight was finding the rare Bromeliad boa (Ungaliophis panamensis)
